and create a path forward. >> you are worried about the environment and climate change. philip wiley wrote "generation of vipers." he said he will never convince man if you talk to him about generations not yet born. man desires immortality. if you desire immortality, you would rather build a smokestack then stopped the environment from getting worse because you are not thinking about your great great great grandchildren. your thinking about you and your son. tavis: i take that. the problem is every politician always preaches about how this will impact our kids and our grandkids. we cannot pass this debt on to future generations. it works rhetorically but it did not worked. >> there are people in denial about climate change. tavis: what is paul ryan's future? was this not a win for him either way? >> he lost his state. he is dynamic. i do not think he is presidential timbre yet, he might throw himself in that race. if he is a tea party candidate, he might win the primaries but he is going to be around, he will be a force, he is likable, i think. i do not dismiss anything. the one thing i'v

had was an unprecedented environment. i like to call it the parable of the boiling frog. you throw the frog in the boiling pot of water, they hop out. but if you keep the frog in the boiling pot of water, it boils to death. women jumped out of the pot of boil water was the level of attack was so significant, so long, so unmitigated, they said enough is enough. >> women are not monolithic, because if you see in certain states where mitt romney lost, you have rep women who did win. so i think because of the negative primaries and because of akin and mourdock stating illegitimate rape, women wanted obama in but had to split the vote to keep republicans in the house. >> look at mccaskill's race. >> she won because she went against the first one who said women can't get pregnant if they're raped legitimately. >> i want to get to the part which evangelicals are a big chunk of the republican block. what happened to them and particularly evangelical women this time? >> again, i think there was always the question of religion and no one wanted to state the obvious which is governor romney's
. >> translator: in the new environment, our party faces many tough challenges. there are numerous pressing problems within the party and senior ranks that need to be resolved, especially corruption and the acceptance of bribes. >> reporter: xi jinping is taking over the position of general secretary from hu jintao. he will lead the politburo's standing committee, china's main decision-making body. the number of seats on the committee has been reduced to seven from nine. analysts say the party made the change to speed up the decision-making process. xi jinping and another top official, li keqiang, have been on the standing committee since 2007. the rest of the members are new. xi introduced them all during his speech. >> zhang dejiang. yu zhengsheng. liu yunshan. wang qishan. zhang gaoli. >> reporter: the majority of officials on the standing committee are allies of former president who retired from politics nearly a decade ago. they face a number of challenges. one is wrapping up china's slowing economic engine. another is addressing growing social discontent over the widening wealth gap a
are in this country today. what's the environment. economically we are extraordinarily troubled times. we have a president that cannot balance the budget, doesn't send a budget that gets any votes up to the hill. so that's what i would say that women who are undecided need to look at, how do we turn that around? the answer is to those concerns is to take a look at what mitt romney promises to do. >> why did the gender gap finally re-emerge in the president's favor so definitively in the last few days of campaigning. >> candidly, bonnie, i think it, quote, disappeared. because the president failed to mention women in that first debate. he has since made up for that and it shows in the gender gap. >> bonnie, look, fewer women have jobs today than they did under barack obama. more woman are in poverty, on food stamps, more children face larger debt than ever faced in the history of this country. real gap what president obama has promised women in what he's actually delivered and i don't think just because "new york times" says there's a new gap that there is necessarily a new gender gap. >> the g
are many-sided. >> iberia, on the one hand, faces a very difficult, external trading environment, a weak spanish economy, rising airport charges, and tough competition. but internally it's a company that hasn't come into the modern age and made itself more lean and mean. it's overmanned, has a large number of routes on the network. >> jamie, thank you very much indeed. now, tens of thousands of people have signed an online petition calling for the pakistani schoolgirl who survived a gun attack by the taliban to be nominated for the nobel peace prize. malala yousafzai, who's 15, had become well known as a campaigner for girls' education. >> malala is said to be humbled and inspired by the thousands of cards and gifts that have been sent to her. it's a month now since she was shot on a school bus for daring to say that girls should get an education. a peace prize nomination can't be made been a ordinary member of the public. that's why this petition has been started, calling on david cameron to put her name forward. >> malala thinks human dignity, tolerance, and plural. she has done with h
as they become richer. we want them not to destroy the world's environment, which they will do if other things being equal. and so we want to work with them on avoiding environmental just destruction. we want them to continue bringing people from rural poverty to sort of urban working classness, which is what they've been doing. we want them to grow up in both international and domestic ways. grow up internationally in having a foreign policy that's not just whatever's good for them commercially, which is what their foreign policy is now. and to say, "okay, you have to play a role in iran and syria or whatever, being responsible." domestically, we want them to gain confidence so they don't have to have their foot on their people's neck. most of the time in china you don't know the government's around. just kind of a sort of state of chaos -- >> really? >> and, yeah. >> i mean, not like russia, the soviet union -- >> oh, it's -- >> not that blanket -- >> entirely different. it's most of the time the areas the government cares about, the internet, democratic protest or whatever, taiwan, tibet, t
republicans were also re-elected, so i don't know why the-- why the washington environment is a whole lot different. >> the other thing the president said was i'm not up for reelection again. so they look ahead, they see 2010 and think if taxes do go up for the middle class, it will be john boehner, and the republicans to take the blame. >> well, that may be but who is it going to play that kind of bluffing game with the debt ceiling because that's when you really risk tremendous market reactions and peril. i know you talked about david petraeus, and the whole foreign policy issue last night on charlie, martha, but do you-- let me ask you again, do you take seriously the notion that john kerry could be defense secretary? >> i think that was a trial balloon. >> you do? >> i 19, clearly both of those stories were trial balloons. president obama, obviously, took it a little further, quite a bit further today talking about susan rice. it was no longer a trial balloon. but i think john kerry-- you know, is that a consolation prize? i think he's probably always wanted to be secretary of state.
